2012 Hyundai Veloster Prices In At $17K

In the market for an entry level sports car? Consider the 2012 Hyundai Veloster. Due to hit the market this fall, the Veloster will price in well under competitors like the Honda CR-Z, providing a solid package of sporty performance and affordable price.

Hyundai announced this week that the Veloster will start at $17,300, some $2,000 less than competitors—the 2011 Honda CR-Z and 2011 Scion tC. That price provides a 1.6-liter GDI engine worth 138-hp and a six-speed manual transmission. Those that prefer automatic shifting can opt for Hyundai's all-new EcoShift dual-clutch. Thanks to a curb weight of just 2,584, the Hyundai Veloster will be plenty lively and will offer an estimated 40 mpg. And it still manages to offer some of the most interior volume in its class.

The Veloster's styling isn't necessarily for everyone, but it's definitely distinctive. Defining elements include the near-flat, sloped roofline, front-end air cuts, wraparound-like greenhouse, and unique three-door design.

The Veloster can be equipped with Hyundai's new Blue Link telematics system that offers advanced functions like remote door lock, on-road assistance, alarm notification, voice-to-text messaging, and vehicle diagnostics. Other features of the Veloster include Pandora connectivity, USB interface, Bluetooth, video game console connectivity with 115-volt power outlet, and seven-inch touchscreen display.

The Veloster hits dealers next month and looks like it could be another success for a brand that's been on a roll.
